Girls Just Want To Have Fun

Sometimes I think I am one of the luckiest people on Earth. Besides having a great husband, awesome kids, and 2 pretty adorable grandchildren, I have a KNK MAXX!!!!! I am also lucky enough to be able to use my KNK Maxx on almost a daily basis.

IMG_2958 My youngest great nephew just turned one. So I made him this little Elmo card. The black body is paper, the rest vinyl. The clear transfer tape  makes it easy to get tiny pieces right where they belong. Here is the file used for elmo.

IMG_2915 This card was made using a free file from Burton Avenue. They offer the most adorable free files so bookmark the page or sign up for emails with free files.

IMG_3008 This is a subway wedding canvas. I use a 12×12 canvas, paint it, apply a coat of mod podge, and then apply the vinyl.

IMG_3002 And last but not least, this is a huge plaque made using tongue and groove wood. Someone saw it on pinterest and asked if I would make them one. My husband did most of the work. The tongue and groove was cut to size and then glued together. I painted it and applied the vinyl letters. He then attached the hooks.

With a little time, a KNK, and some imagination (or Pinterest) the things you can make are endless!




This picture was made from a My Scrap Chick cutting file. I had made it into a card last year and it was so cute so I decided to try a picture size. I painted an 8×10 canvas midnight blue. I then cut the file so that it fit the canvas. The paper is coredinations, the white moon is gemstone, the stars are a metallic vinyl from, and the eyes are vinyl. It is one of the many great things about the KNK, you can cut almost any medium and any size that will fit your machine.

Sympathy Card from paper and vinyl


I have fallen in love with making cards from paper and vinyl. I have never been a fan of stamping, maybe because I am not good at it. And I wasn’t a fan of gluing words to a card. So this is perfect! I really like cordinations textured paper and oracal vinyl. The oracal vinyl is available at The font used is Robo Passion Conflict but unfortunately it is no longer available as a free font. Aquarelle is almost identical and  can be found here The filigree was from and is available in their dollar download section. Both the black mat and the vinyl words and filigree were cut using my Klic n Kut Maxx.This card was very easy to make and I think looks very elegant.
